1.7 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
Pour from a 12oz bottle. Pale yellow brew with white head that immediately fades. Not much to the aroma but for a bit of metal. Taste is bland sweet corn at the start with a slightly metallic astringent finish. Inoffensive and verging on worse. Not so good.

1.4 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
Bottle courtesy of Pedro. Pours a lightly hazy, pale straw with quickly diminishing white head. Nose of toast, iron, unfermented wort, feedbag, honey. Lightish body. Cloyingly sweet. I think Iím going to introduce this to the drain.

3.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
The color is a very pale amber. The aroma is very sweet, sweeter than many of the sweeter Belgians, and seems to scream the word ícorní with some grassy or barnyard elements to it. The flavor backs that up. Thereís no complexity here. Itís sweet and malty, with a little corn to it, and virtually no hops presence. (But Iím not an IPA fanatic, so that doesnít bother me.) In spite of the sweetness and lack of complexity, itís a very easy beer to drink. Itís smooth, not too thick or creamy. While it would never make my list of the 10, 20, or even 100 beers Iíd want to be stuck on a desert island with, itís not terrible. Iíd take it over any beer by the macro breweries, and over some of the craft and micro beers Iíve had in the past year or so. Would I rather have an Ommegang, Left Hand, Dogfish Head, or New Belgium product? Yes. But would I turn this down if offered it at a party? Depends on the alternatives.

2.1 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 7/20
Yeah baby! Thanks to trycyclist for bonusing me this want list gem! Pours hazy amber with a gigantic off-white creamy head that dissipates with nice, if somewhat clumpy, lacing. Aroma is corn syrup, grain, caramel. Flavor is sweet, corny, brown sugar, butterscotch. Medium body. Nowhere near as bad as I expected, actually.

1.2 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 4/20
Bottle @ weekly tasting shared by Joes. A bit unclear yellowish color, small white head. Smell and taste wort and grainy "cattle feed". Lives up to its name. Damn.

Gedronken met joes, dutchdrebis en benzai. Gele heldere kleur. Ruikt naar spinazie, olvarit. Smaakt ook zoiets, beetje kuilvoerachtig

2.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 7/20
12oz bottle. $2 from Party Source. Because fuck it, theyíll stock anything. Totally clear golden yellow color. Thin white head. No lace really sticks. Wow, this is like liquid corn. Literally, the most straight-up corn beer (or beverage of any kind) that Iíve ever had. Which is actually kind of interesting. Itís a yellow-corn showcase. Way less skunky and metallic flavors than I was expecting. A little, sure, but way, way less than expected. Mostly just an impressively clean sweet yellow corn flavor. I canít believe Iím giving this a 6 for aroma, but itís just straight up clean corn and I canít fault it for that. Damn interesting, really. I fear I may find it in the bowl tomorrow. Taste is lightly sour, moderate sweet. Medium body. Kind of smoothish, crispish, light to moderate carbonation, more dry texture. Man, this is conflicting. Iím kind of intrigued and fascinated by the taste, but I know if I curiously drank a 6 pack of this Iíd have the worst drunk-time / hangover ever. Might be fun to try. Seriously, not great though. But Horse Piss is a misnomer (not that I would know)

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
12 ounce from Liquor Barn for $2. Was a bit cautious about the price, but hey, look at that name! Bready and slightly malty. Slight lemon to it. Bit of grape. Hardly the worst beer Iíve ever had. My expectations were far lower than what I ended up with.

0.9 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 2/20
Aroma: (2- very bad) Very doughy yeast aroma, like soggy white bread. Maybe a touch of lemon in there. Maybe.
Appearance: (2- below average) A very slight white head (if you can call it that) caps off a very carbonated, translucent gold body. Does not look appealing.
Flavor: (2- very bad) Soggy bread meets Liptonís iced tea; rather tangy. Maybe even a tomato note that those really bad N/A middle eastern near-beers have. This might get lowered if I lose my lunch within the hour.
Palate: (1- very bad) Light body, thin texture, fizzy carbonation and a long finish to prolong the pain.
Overall: Yeesh. One of the worst things Iíve ever put in my mouth. After reading other reviews, it seems the quality goes up and down, and this is hopefully rock bottom. Glad I picked up a bottle since 1. Itís from Kentucky. 2. Itís the worst beer in Kentucky, and I had to try that. 3. Itís for charity (see website). Still, youíd think BBC would make a charitable beer that people wanted to drink again and again. So, maybe itís one of the worst charitable beers out there? Could be. Got my drainpour on.
